As promised in a previous post, I'm sharing 2 samples of colored pencil layering I worked on and submitted to my online teacher, Bet Borgenson.
With this class, I continue to gain new insights and skills in ways to effectively use color to its fullest advantage without compromising quality and spending extravagant amounts of time.
The square images above are examples of 2 techniques of layering, using only 3 colors to achieve 2 different effects. They illustrate how varying methods of layering can create a static mood and one that is more visually interesting to the viewer's eye.
Below, this (unfinished) image also uses a limited number of colors that are layered, achieving correct skin tones and visual interest.
